    Anyone else think this is a pretty big deal. Grabbing a head coach from SLU to to take a coordinator job with us. I like this move.

    I do.

    This should quite any anti-UL recruiting angles that might be used by in-state FCS schools.

    He was the DC at northwestern state when we hired him & his defense was pretty terrible but created turnovers and you know how much our previous coach loved turnovers

    I'm thinking more like Robe getting Szcfc. That was pretty successful for both.

    He brought him in as defensive assistant ..When lucus took over as DC he had the greatest linebacker core UL has ever seen which hid a lot of his coaching inabilities that .. when they left his true abilities were shown

    Point being he wasn't brought here to run our defense. He got the position under circumstances. He was brought here to coach LB'ers.

    But was promoted to DC instead of doing a national search

    It would not have mattered who was the DC was because Hud ran his idiotic defense anyway

    A national search? It was week 2 of the season and his results from week 2 on during that season he deserved to get it.

    Who would wanted to come here given hudspeths status? Move your family here for most likely a year? 2 at the most. He probably put feelers out and had little to no interest and that is certainly something a coach wouldn't publicize that nobody wanted to come.If will hall didn't play forHudspeth I doubt he would have made the jump.

    A national search? Only professional organizations do stuff like that. We didn't need no stinkin' national search.

    No one does a national search for assistant coaches. That is the advantage to being a head coach, you can hire your own staff.. for good or bad.

    He put ZERO feelers out and hired Lucus becuase it was a favor for someone
